French drain installation process

Here's how to install a French drain:

  1. Site assessment: A thorough assessment of your property's perimeter is carried out to identify specific drainage requirements.
  2. ‍Excavation: A trench is dug around the perimeter of the foundation.‍
  3. ‍Crack repair: The foundation is high-pressure washed and any cracks are repaired by injecting polyurethane resin.‍
  4. Membrane installation: membranes are installed on the foundation wall to waterproof it.‍
  5. Installation of perforated pipes: Installation of perforated pipes at the bottom of the trench.‍
  6. Installation of access stacks: Drain access stacks are installed to facilitate maintenance and extend the life of the drain.‍
  7. Adding gravel: The trench is filled with gravel, around and above the pipes. The gravel serves to filter and prevent blockage of the pipes by soil particles, while allowing water to seep quickly into the pipe.‍
  8. Installation of geotextile fabric: The gravel is covered with a geotextile membrane. This fabric prevents soil from entering the gravel while allowing water to pass through, helping to maintain the efficiency of the drainage system.‍
  9. Backfilling the trench: Once the pipe is in place and the gravel covered with geotextile fabric, the trench is backfilled with the excavated soil. In some cases, an additional layer of gravel can be added on top of the fabric before backfilling for added protection.‍
  10. Drainage connection: The French drain must be properly connected to a drainage system, such as a discharge well, storm sewer, or a safe place where water can be directed without causing problems.
